This is the first time I've reviewed something like this on the blog! Reviva Labs Makeup Primer has become a staple in my beauty routine now. I have been testing it for weeks to make sure I can give an accurate review. My consensus? I LOVE IT.
Let me give you a little background on my previous makeup routine - eyeliner and mascara. That's seriously all I used to wear. I never really put much else on my face. Why bother? I've always had decent skin, and using a hormone birth control pill always kept my skin even better than it's original state. But all that changed when I stopped taking the pill. My skin didn't completely degenerate into a cesspool or anything hahah It just got more oily, and my pores were getting to be more noticeable. I still, at that point, wasn't a fan of foundation or powder, so I started using a moisturizer - and then along came tinted moisturizer (which, I'm saying now is the BEST thing to ever happen to busy women who enjoy looking pretty).
So now I'm on the next great thing I've found. Keep in mind, this is not new. It's just new to me. This makeup is the bee's knees, I tell ya. I will be completely honest - I never in a million years thought I would ever need, want or use a product like this.
from RevivaLabs.com: If you're satisfied with how you look in
makeup, wait till you see how good you look with Reviva's amazing MAKEUP
PRIMER under your makeup. Your skin will feel unbelievably smooth,
like a baby's. And your look...almost flawless!
I was always pretty dissatisfied with makeup in general. But when I decided to take this blog in the beauty-related direction, steering away from solely nail blogging, I knew it was time to start learning about, well, everything! haha Even back when I was a teen I wasn't much into makeup. It was always just whatever the quickest thing to do was. Actually I'm still that way now. Why bother putting all that makeup on when it's going to fall, crease or start to look weird? But now, with this makeup primer, I don't have to worry about my makeup looking, ahem, weird after a few hours of being out and about. With this primer, my makeup stays put. All day long.
It's so easy...four small drops. Four small clear drops. One drop to cover your chin and lower jaw, one for each cheek/eye, and the last for the forehead. It's really that simple!
The texture is a light gel-like, and adheres very well to the skin. To the touch, it makes my skin feel like silk. Smooth, silky perfection. Did I mention my pores are pretty noticeable? It helps hide that. Not like, my skin is 100% baby smooth or anything, but it does detract from the appearance of larger pores. I just rub this primer in and top with my Olay tinted moisturizer. The end product is flawless coverage and great makeup all day long.
So my bottom line? I can't live without it. It's packed with ingredients that are good for your skin, and it makes your skin look good. What more could you ask for?
edit: Someone asked about the ingredients. Here there are - Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Vitamin A Palmitate, Vitamin D3(Cholecalciferol), Olive Oil, Coenzyme Q10, Squalane.
